Flowering strips in blossom - monitoring continues

This week, we continue with sampling of flowering strips in the Stromovka city park and the University campus, this time with the help of the Italian student Chiara, who joined our group thanks to the Erasmus + program. Besides many oxeye daisies (Leucanthemum vulgare), we found for example white bedstraw (Galium album), yellow chamomile (Anthemis tinctoria) or yellow mignonette (Reseda lutea). We are curious about the species which we record during the repeated sampling at the end of summer.

In addition to botanical research, entomological monitoring is carried out on the flowering strips, focusing on solitary wasps and bees, and butterflies, who use flowers within the strips as food.
